“Perfect Getaway, Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Booked online through Hello Garden Route which was very efficient.
Spent 1night upstairs using the inter-leading rooms, spacious enough for an 11month and 4yr old to be entertained and 2 nights down stairs which included a lounge and kitchen.
We'll maintained appliances and sufficient crockery and utensils. Decor created a very relaxed ambience making you feel like you're on holiday.
Would recommend upstairs if you have little ones as there is the waters edge to contend with downstairs.
Security were warm and friendly and Theseun Island has the best breakfast/ lunch restaurant in Knysna called Ille de Pain, only a minutes drive or five minutes if you feel like walking.

“Peaceful setting, lovely accommodation”
Reviewed 15 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We spent four nights in the Beach Unit at Lazy Island and had a wonderful stay. Booking was easy online, and communication was prompt and helpful with the owner.

The Beach unit is very spacious with large separate lounge, covered deck over the water, nice kitchen and dining areas, comfortable bed and great bathroom with large tub and open shower. The decor is charming and comfortable. We had breakfast every morning on our deck, looking out over the canals. So relaxing.

The community is secure and gated, with plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance, but still only a short drive to the waterfront and town centre. The unit feels very secure, and includes a safe.

The lights had some problems while we were there but Corlia was on hand to work it out quickly. The only downside was some very noisy upstairs neighbors which detracted from our enjoyment of the lovely setting. If there is a way to cut down the noise that filters down from above (a rug to absorb sound, a more robust door between the units at the bottom of the stairs) that would help a lot.

The owner was friendly and helpful, and was on hand whenever we needed something or had a question. I would recommend Lazy Island for a stay in the Knysna area!

“Amazing Place - Great Location - Nice Owners”
Reviewed 13 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Gorgeous well-maintained (REALLY clean) place with all that you could want and more. Beautiful views of the water. Safe location with a guarded gate. The only thing I would change is the windows in the upstairs rooms are covered with very shear drapes which let the gorgeous sun shine in and in and in. So, if you still have wicked jet-lag (like we did) you will be forced to rise early in the morning. But, the upside is that it gave us lots of time to explore the heads, the beaches, use the kayaks and eat at Ile De Pain for breakfast (YUMMY!) Also, WiFi was spotty. We were travelling as a couple with one other well-travelled couple. We had one of the upstairs studios and the whole downstairs.

“A marvelous vacation.”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed at the house with our grown up kids. The house is on an island in the lagoon. The view is great. We rowed the two kayaks, which were tied under the house around the lagoon, which was a lot of fun. The house itself is amazing. Its whole decor is about te sea, and it is beautifully furnished. It is fully equipped, with a lot of attention to every small detail. Once we entered, we didn't want to leave.
